RIP Harvey and thanks for all the laughs.

EDIT: One of the funniest things I've ever watched was Tim Conway cracking Harvey Korman up ... when I was a kid I'd laugh until it hurt watching Korman try to keep a straight face, he nearly always failed which is what made the skits even funnier.

Rest in peace Harvey.  You were one of the most brilliant comedians to ever make us laugh.

Not Hedley Lamarr!! Tell me it ain't so!

I really loved watching Harvey and Tim Conway try to break  each other up in those skits on the Carol Burnett show.  They don't make'em like him anymore.

I was just talking about him a few days ago (& then, about the "Gone with the Wind" sketch!).

RIP, Mr. Korman, I loved your comedy.

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

That makes me sad . . . I grew up on the Carol Burnett show, and Conway and Korman were the ones who made the show work.  Man, they don't make TV like that any more.

Rest in peace, Harvey . . . I'll bet you've already got the angels giggling.

RIP to a comedy legend.

Thanks for all the laughs.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

I just found out. It's always a surprise when a famous person passes, but this one caught me off guard. And it saddens me more than usual. More than Don Knotts, surprisingly enough.

Between his work on Carol Burnett, the Flintstones and my favourite Mel Brooks comedy, among other things (including a certain holiday special), Korman provided a lot of laughs when I was a kid. Now I feel like dusting off that old VHS of Blazing Saddles.

We won't soon forget HARVEY KORMAN.  Good night, HARVEY!
This is 8.5 minutes long but well worth it, it manages to squeeze in offense to all; I love the part when he walks away from the ticket booth... the best part of this movie:

Harvey Korman passed away just a few days ago, and this is one time in which it is particularly difficult to say something.

He never really seemed...old.

Harvey and Tim really brought something special to comedy. Both of them worked apart from each other, but there was really nothing that compared to the two of them working together.

Harvey Korman particularly made it fun to watch their routines because not only did his cracking up make the skit even funnier, but he was enjoying the skit as much as we were, and that made it really special.

He was really underrated in my opinion. Even if the material or project he was doing was a stinker, he never failed to deliver on it. He could work off of another comedian, be the straight man, or even be the funny guy himself, and there was a certain subtlety to his performance that made everybody else working with him that much better.

Pardon my sappiness, but I feel that he was one of the foundations of comedy and television during the latter half of the 20th century that made it what it was.

Thankfully he had a long life; we cannot lament him that. Legends do pass on, and remind us that they were very real. He left quite a wonderful memory for everybody in his life.
